Arsenal‘s request to postpone the North London derby after one positive test for COVID-19 has been accepted, days before the visit of Liverpool in the League Cup.

It has been confirmed that the North London derby between Tottenham and Arsenal will not go ahead as planned on Sunday, due to a lack of availability for the visitors.

The postponement of the Reds’ semi-final trip to the Emirates was met with ferocious criticism from Arsenal supporters, amplified by the return of a majority of false positives among Jurgen Klopp‘s squad.

The North London derby is now the 20th game to be called off due to Covid in this Premier League season, though it is a stretch to claim that was the reasoning for this one.

For balance, the same should have applied to Liverpool when pushing for the postponement of their clash with Arsenal – though a suspected outbreak among the under-23s squad and the closure of Kirkby did at least explain the situation more transparently.

But having played out a 0-0 draw in the first leg at Anfield – after Liverpool forfeited home advantage – the Gunners have now forced a postponement of their own.

This is despite only one case of COVID-19 reported among Mikel Arteta’s squad, that being Martin Odegaard, who also missed the League Cup tie on Thursday night.
